Prisms and Rainbows
Our eyes and brain interpret the simple mixing of only 3 colors of light (red, green, and blue) as white. The students were able to confirm this in the last lesson. In this lesson students will develop the understanding that "white" light from the Sun and "white" light from an artificial light source is a full range of colors from red to violet. Students will also learn how droplets of water function as prisms to separate this full range of colors into rainbows.
